Seventh grade students Selin Aktuna and Daniel Munzert were selected as nominees for the Broadcom MASTERS program. Only 10% of science fair projects get to be in this program. They both have a chance to be named one of the top 300 MASTERS or one of the 30 finalists. If they become one of the 30 finalists, they will go to Washington D.C. for a weeklong competition and have the chance to win $25,000, trips to STEAM summer camps, and more.

“I’m really happy I made it,” Daniel said. “I really hope I become one of the finalists but I really don’t want to fly to Washington D.C. for the competition.”

“I also really hope I win the $25,000. Who doesn’t?! For my project, my favorite part was displaying it and explaining it to people who didn’t know what it was about.”

 

“I’m happy to be chosen for this!” Selin said excitedly. “Going to Washington D.C. for something academic is really great because I’ve never traveled somewhere for anything like that. If I win the competition, I’ll donate money to help advance science that I’m too young to help with.”

 

“For my project I did ‘Why infinity divided by zero isn’t zero,’” Daniel said. “My project took about three weeks to do.”

“My project was pilobolus crystalious or the shot gun fungus, and how it reacts to different amounts of light to grow,” Selin said. “It took about two weeks to a month to do.”

They are already planning for next year.

“I’m planning to do predicting population with models and adding factors,” Selin said.

 

“Next year I’m planning to do bohemian logic for my project,”  Daniel said.
